I don't really know what will happen if you leave it there, aside from it taking up space.  But since it wasn't there before, I would be surprised if removing it caused any problems, especially if you didn't run regsvr32 yet.

Also, of the disassemblers are for SMB1, apparently.
Oh, right.  (Also, these are disassemblies, not disassemblers.  Disassemblers are used to disassemble and produce a disassembly.)

If you can find one for SMB3 please tell me
The first Google hit for <super mario bros 3 disassembly> is http://www.sonicepoch.com/sm3mix/disassembly.html .  (See http://www.sonicepoch.com/sm3mix/ for the download link.)

unless I overlooked and the disassembler also works with SMB3.
Anything can be disassembled; it's just that the result is difficult to work with unless someone goes through the entire thing very, very slowly and annotates the code.

I've also located System32, and dropped Comdlg.ocx in there, but I can't seem to access the Command Prompt(I use Windows 8.).
I hope you took note that you shouldn't be using the System32 folder if you are running the 64-bit version of Windows 8.  If you're not sure if you're using the 64-bit version, I suggest you take fifteen seconds to do a Google search and find out.

SMB3 Text Editor is too stubborn to load, and I'm not going through risky .dll junk again. I already have a .dll fixer software that's engraved on my PC because of trying to those kinds of issues.
I agree there is no shortage of dodgy sites proferring quick and easy solutions to DLL problems, but it is entirely possible to do these things safely, as I explained in your other thread.  Certainly, trying to hammer out these things from scratch or to find someone else to hammer it out from scratch is probably many times more difficult.

Yes, thank you; that was appalling.  I didn't even realize it was just a graphics hack.

There's lots of cheap stuff available from HX dealers like DX.com.  Of course, you get what you pay for.

Before I got my Clip+, I had a little AAA-powered Nextar unit that suited me fine.  Arranging the playlist required a small freeware program to directly manipulate entries in the FAT.

I tried a nifty little RCA unit once that was pretty cool in that it didn't require a USB cable and basically functioned as a USB stick with a screen on the side.  I think I returned that because the microphone function wasn't working.

He hasn't quit. He was showing current/new work on Twitch a few weeks ago.
Abuh?  I'd pretty much given up on this ever seeing the light of day.

It does?  I was not aware of that.

Still, I figure they could put some sort of pre-authorized debt on one's credit card when you buy a 3DS and say you're going to trade it in, and then remove the pre-authorization when you bring in the one you want to trade in before a certain number of days.  Yes, that would require a credit card, but it's still better than disallowing it entirely.

But then, I've never worked in retail and there could well be some perfectly logical reason (perhaps relating to legality) why that isn't feasible.

RE-EDIT: I tried to open SMBar in Compatibility Mode(using ALL of the Operating Systems), and now I need to download COMDLG32.OCX. I think a download is mandatory, or else I'm screwed, since this program refuses to work. Do you know any safe places to download .dll and .ocx files?
This particular dependency is a common problem in old Visual Basic programs.  Presumably it works the same way in Windows 8 as it does in Windows 7:

You may also end up needing comctl32.ocx.  You can get that from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896559 ; you will need to register it the same way.

How bizarre!  I would sooner blame Gamestop for being backwards and unfriendly than call out Nintendo.

Does Gamestop not let you do a system transfer when you trade in a 3DS?  There's money to be made.

I guess that's possible, but considering that prices on the secondary market seem to be kind of lousy, and considering how much it costs to purchase individual games, it just strikes me as unlikely.

With the 3DS I can do a system transfer, but I need both DS' for that to work. Which means I can't sell my current, soon-to-be obsolete 3DS without losing everything I bought online. Sure, I can transfer it, assuming I keep this 3DS, but I can't recoup some of my spent money until after the transfer.
...So, it's a big deal that you can't sell your old system before you buy a new one?  No, I do not see this as being a great concern to anyone.

If you're suggesting you would be able to sell your current 3DS on the secondhand market for a substantially greater sum at the moment than you will when the new model comes out, that also seems unlikely.  The new 3DS will be available at the price of the current 3DS.

The other side are apologists which seem more interested in justifying the move than actually explaining how it isn't a bad move.
We are not privy to the internal workings of Nintendo, ergo, how should we be able to explain their reasoning?  To assume malice or ignorance seems like an unreasonable leap.

It's a little bit discouraging that the only thing they can think of so far to sell this new system is a port of an old Wii game.

Especially because downloads are tied to systems instead of accounts. So if you want to trade in your old 3DS, then there goes your downloads, or anything else tied to your system.
3DS system transfers were introduced quite some time ago; more recently, they even changed things so you can do the transfer an unlimited number of times.  The only problems emerge when your older system is completely busted.

4: Are there any good places to download .dll files? There is a utility I'd really like to try  out on this website called "Super Mario Alternate Reality", and it requires a .dll file, so I download a .dll file fixer that automatically installed the .dll file I was looking for, and when I opened Super Mario Alternate Reality, afterwards, it still didn't work, except this time, it's not because of a .dll file.
I assume you're referring to http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/71/ .  It seems that it requires compatibility mode: right-click smbar.exe, select Properties, then the Compatibility tab, and then select "Run this program in compatiblity mode".  XP will probably work, or maybe Windows 95.  The optimal way would be to use XP Mode if you're running Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, or to use a virtual machine running XP.

Also, please don't say things like "it still didn't work" without providing some explanation of what exactly happens.

The "Abandoned" section over on the left has lots of script dumpers/inserters for various projects.  I'm sure a lot of people would love to see Tomato Adventure.

I've had to look at some Japanese patents in the past, though I wasn't aware they had software patents at all.  The claims are generally much fewer in number than US or EP claims.

The review at PC Gamer suggests the game actually becomes quite manageable, to the point that there's nothing left to do, once you work out the movement patterns.

The question in the subject line makes no sense.  Did you mean with a flashcart?  Isn't the DStwo a flashcart?

Considering the GBA "Ambassador" games exist, I would say yes, a GBA emulator has been made for the 3DS without a flashcart.
